Konopka has scored 29 points in his entire career. Boyle has hit that mark in a single season, twice. Boyle won't score 20 goals again but at least he knows how to get points.

I like Konopka but that would not be a good move for this team. He has no spot. I don't care how much damn grit he brings. It would be a dumb move to claim him.
